Julian Hakes a shoo-in for award

Shoe designer and winner of this year’s Drapers Footwear Designer of the Year award Julian Hakes added another gong to his trophy cabinet by winning the Start Up Hub Innovation Award at the recent Conservative Party conference.

The architect-trained designer’s work blends his two passions to create physics-defying, sculptural shoes using a sophisticated 3D laser-scanning technique. The award gives Hakes impetus to further develop his signature Mojito shoe style (pictured) and work on his new boot range, to be unveiled in February. Prime Minister David Cameron was quoted as “impressed” and would “show Mrs Cameron the shoes”.
